Airtable

Many business processes can be improved with a collaborative relational database, but few know how to create and use one. It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve. The combination of a minimal learning curve and features make Airtable a win. I've already recommended it to colleagues at other universities who've started using it.

We had a game of the week that we were covering, along with other major area matchups. We were able to collaborate our games altogether and provide a stream that kept us up to date with what else was happening across our area, and how it affected our game of the week as far as standings. Our initial setup was difficult, and we had to work around other workers who are technologically impaired, per se. The support team provided to us was mostly unresponsive, but we managed in spite of it.

Pros

  • Extremely easy for low tech people to pick up and use. It feels intuitive and there are lots of examples that make it easy to learn.
  • The blocks make some pretty sophisticated stuff possible, even for people who lack a tech or database background.
  • Its a replacement for lead/case management, project management, and file storage - all in one!

  • LifeSize happened to be one of the solutions we were able to pitch in easily, as it moved from a complete H.323 system to a cloud solution thanks to the Lifesize cloud. This allowed users to do their Video Conference calls without spending additional money on dedicated lines for your Video Conference.
  • Easy setup and use of devices they really try to make it easy on users

Cons

  • The trial period should be a bit longer. I wanted to test it before I rolled it out to my team. Just after I felt comfortable and started to share, the trial period ended.
  • Shorter videos. I think there are great resources available and I really think that is a strength, but if I had to suggest something, it would be to make more short videos to give technical how-tos.

  • The chat functionality needs maturity. Would love to replace Slack w/ LSC, as LSC has most of the features that we are looking for, such as chat. However, it is missing support for images, rich text, and many other features you have come to expect from a strong IM platform.
  • Notifications could be better. Would like to see icon badges on the taskbar icon, better use of Win10 notification center. Doesn't do a good enough job to highlight missed calls or messages while you were away.
  • The live stream functionality is a good value for the cost, but is rough around the edges and needs polish.
  • The recording functionality, while easy to use and quite valuable, is held back by the paltry 10 hours of recording space you are given. Since it has a video library and sharing capabilities, it is a shame that you can only keep 10 hours of content there.

We've made a commitment to use LifeSize across all our international offices. Switching to another platform now would be costly, cumbersome, and unnecessary. LifeSize is doing its job well and has been since we started with them ~ 3 years ago.

We have more than 7 codecs installed on our branch offices and we communicate very often using Lifesize video calls. Users also have their mobile app and they connect to the video calls flawlessly. This is a very useful piece of software and the Lifesize cloud subscription gives you access to the full service capabilities.

Since we are an educational institution we not only have scheduled classes which must be available, but we have staff members in a variety of areas ranging from recruiting and admissions to advancement and the President's office who need to connect with students, alumni and other interest groups, often at odd hours. I have not, since using Lifesize had anyone complain of not being able to connect

We chose Lifesize because we are in a consortium with several other small universities. Each university has its own LMS and professors and IT departments each either provide or allow users to use additional tools or programs. Additionally, as our staff members use Lifesize to communicate with those outside our system we must have a tool that is capable of integration with what is being used by our faculty and staff as well as those they interact with in the course of their academic business.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

I recommend mounting the camera system and not moving it. The connections to the system are fragile. Also, I would pay more attention to the location of the camera - watch out for high chair backs or people who may block the camera.

Alternatives Considered

I have mostly set up and helped architect custom database solutions in a proprietary software, as compares directly to Airtable. I have set up and used JIRA Software extensively, and several Marketing Automation systems, and set up Oncontact CRM, and used DAM systems, and Basecamp project management. All in all setting up databases and introducing them to organizations is one of my primary skills and I have several years experience doing this within an organization and as a consultant for other organizations. This is why I love Airtable so much - I have never seen something so lightweight, so inexpensive, and so powerful. Pound for pound it whips any system I have ever used. When I think back to all the custom database solutions I've implemented, and other processes I've managed and consulted on within organizations, I can't help but wonder how many of them would have vastly better off with a simple Airtable implementation.

We always had a bad time with Skype and could never really get 100% consistency with it. There is always someone who can't share their screen or even set up Skype meetings from their email. With Lifesize, I feel like it is a big upgrade from Skype as we haven't had any of these issues. Also, the quality of video and voice are much better with Lifesize.

Lifesize has expanded its cloud video conferencing and I foresee it going that direction instead of room to room hardware. We currently have no plan to add or upgrade any of our in room systems but having the ability to connect room to cloud or cloud to cloud is an excellent feature from Lifesize.

Return on Investment

  • Time saved in developing our in house employee management tool is massive! Was able to create a full-fledged HR system in 1 hour, v.s. at least 4-5 hours using Google Sheets or creating a custom web-based solution
  • We have also implemented it for managing our in-house PR process for managing journalist relations and task management for PR activities. This is in the process and we are yet to do a formal ROI analysis here
  • Project Management - We earlier were using a clunky and difficult to use software to manage our projects, but Airtable seems to be a great option for improving productivity and ease of use by at least 30-40%
